Me and my girlfriend just stayed for one night as we had another stay booked in advanced afterwards. But we really enjoyed our time. Being during low season we were alone in the hostel (and in Salta it felt like) and so there was a quiet and calm atmosphere, and yet the owner Juan was really welcoming and provided us with everything we needed. The hostel is about 10 blocks from the city center, perfect if you dont want the street noise 24/7.

Mixed feelings about El balcon. Very clean, safe and staff were nice so thumbs up. The location is a bit of a downer though as there's not much around and its a 20min walk to the plaza. Atmosphere was very quiet so this could be a positive or negative depending on what you're after.


A beautiful house with garden and grill, quiet rooms, and everybody was welcoming and helpful - very lovely, I would always come back!!
